ALL MY LIFE I HAD TO FIGHT: 'The Color Purple' shines at Actor’s Express.

“All my life I had to fight,” Sophia says, in Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Color Purple. The cult classic is brought to life through an outstanding musical performance at Actor’s Express, featuring show-stopping songs about adversity, strength, and love. The production features Latrice Pace as Celie, Jasmyne Hinson as Shug, and Kevin Harry as Mister, in what was called “a joyous celebration of storytelling” by The New York Times and earned two Tony Awards in the Broadway revival. You won’t want to miss out on this provocative yet uplifting musical.
